The Hancock Historical Museum is a wonderful place to live the past of Hancock County. It's campus includes a log cabin, three homes from different eras, agriculture barn, transportation displays including two Grant cars, Buckeye Traction Ditcher, an Adams truck, fire truck, tractor, airplane, Indian motorcycle. In the exhibit room displays are rotated at times but include a bathtub from the battleship Maine, Civil War uniforms, memorabilia from businesses in the area, etc. There is an archival department in which you may research people and events. The gift shop has a large collection of Findlay Glass available for purchase. At a separate location is the Little Red Schoolhouse and the Riverside Train (a small scale train that was a ride at Riverside Park for many years). You can spend as little as an hour and as much as four or five hours depending on your interest in the past. So much to see. The Museum is located at 422 West Sandusky Street in Findlay, OH.
